Definitely for Redheads

by Bookaholic22 on Jun 30, 2010

As a redhead, I enjoyed the myth, science and symbology of Ms. Roach's detective hunt for the secret and meaning of red hair. A pleasant read, I learned that I needed two genes, not one, to look the way I do. An excellent gift for redheads, or the redhead fan.

Sleep Inducing At Best

by PMbradshaw on Feb 21, 2007

This book poses somewhat of a conundrum. Is it an over-thought monologue on the author???¢?¢â?š?¬?¢â?ž?¢s own hair color, or an exceedingly dull scholarly treatise? The answer: it is both! It???¢?¢â?š?¬?¢â?ž?¢s a hodge-podge of historical references, anecdotes, and Patty Scialfa. Never delving deep enough into the history, it manages to still lay on what it does say with an all-too heavy brush, dripping with overindulgent prose. In the end, it is sound and fury signifying???¢?¢â?š?¬????¦ the onset of sleep. If you are in need of a never-ending supply of sleep medication, save yourself some money and buy this book. If not, don???¢?¢â?š?¬?¢â?ž?¢t bother.
